Parra will man left field and bat sixth in Wednesday's wild-card game against Arizona, Jenny Carver of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra will receive the start instead of Ian Desmond with right-hander Zack Greinke on the mound for the Diamondbacks. Over the course of the 2017 season, Parra is hitting .286 with nine home runs and 60 RBI in 294 at-bats against righties.

Parra is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks Parra's third straight absence, as his month-long struggles (.221/.253/.299) have started to effect his playing time. The last two absences have come against lefties, but Parra also sat Tuesday against a right-hander. Clayton Kershaw is due up for Los Angeles on Saturday, so Parra may ride the pine yet again.

Parra is not in the lineup against the Marlins on Wednesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra will remain on the bench for the second consecutive game while Ian Desmond draws another start in left field with left-hander Adam Conley taking the mound for Miami. Following Colorado's scheduled off day Thursday, Parra could return to the starting lineup for Friday's series opener against the Dodgers, although another southpaw -- Hyun-Jin Ryu -- is set to toe the rubber for that game as well.

Parra is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins, according to Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post.

EDGE Analysis

Parra recorded just one hit in 21 at-bats over the last five games he started, so manager Bud Black decided to give him a day off. Ian Desmond will get the nod in left field for the Rockies on Tuesday night.

Parra is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra will get the day off after starting six straight games for the Rockies, going 7-for-22 (.318) with a pair of RBI over that stretch. He should continue to sit about once a week as the Rockies look to get Carlos Gonzalez into the lineup. With Parra out, Colorado will deploy an outfield of Ian Desmond, Charlie Blackmon and Gonzalez (from left to right).

Parra is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra typically sits roughly once per week as part of an outfield rotation to get Carlos Gonzalez into the lineup. Gonzalez is starting in right field and hitting sixth. Parra is hitting .237/.279/.342 with zero home runs and one steal in 38 September at-bats.

Parra (thigh) is serving as the Rockies' DH for Wednesday's game against the Royals, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wednesday is a rare occasion for the Rockies, as they're playing in an American League park and can use a designated hitter. As a result, they'll be able to have Parra's bat in the lineup without running the risk of having him aggravate his thigh while playing in the field. The Rockies have another game in Kansas City on Thursday, so they may opt to use Parra as their DH once again before having him return to the outfield when they face the Braves on Friday.

Parra was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to a right thigh contusion, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra was scheduled to draw the start in left field for Tuesday's game against the Royals, but he apparently wasn't feeling comfortable during pregame warmups and will be replaced by Raimel Tapia in the lineup. The veteran outfielder may still be feeling the effects of his hit-by-pitch during Sunday's game. He'll be a day-to-day case moving forward.

Parra went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI in Wednesday's 10-5 loss to the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Both of Parra's doubles came against starter Chris Flexen, as he hit one to lead off the second inning before driving in two runs in the third. The left-handed hitting outfielder has posted multi-hit efforts in 15 of his past 24 games started, and is slashing career highs across the board at .355/.376/.535. Parra should continue to serve as an excellent source of RBI while batting in the heart of Colorado's explosive lineup.

Parra is likely to take over the everyday role in left field with Ian Desmond (calf) heading to the 10-day disabled list.

EDGE Analysis

Parra thrived earlier this month when Desmond was sidelined with a similar injury and is currently batting .480 with a 1.184 OPS and 15 RBI over his last 50 at-bats. He likely checks in as an everyday outfielder moving forward, along with Charlie Blackmon and Carlos Gonzalez, and should also see plenty of opportunities at the plate, as manager Bud Black has slotted him in the clean-up spot for the past two games.
